Perfect home for 2

I have been thinking a lot about the concept of home in the last few months. I have said with tears in my eyes time and time again that since my parents divorce and the selling of our house that I feel like I can never go home again... it doesn't exist. It is easy for everyone to tell me home is where your family is... but my family unit doesn't exist anymore either. I know I'm being negative and wallowing in how impossible it is to have my too perfect dipped in nostalgia version of how my family would have been if we could have stayed together, but that really doesn't exist either (it isn't even close to accurate) I love my family. that feeling is home. I'm happy in my apartment with my roommates for the last 2 years. that is home. I enjoy the people I work with @ Z-Gallerie (we have been family for 3 years now) Home. I love my boyfriend because he shows me new ways to look at the world everyday. Home.

Because home is wherever and whatever I want it to be I would like to take it on a tour of sorts. There is a lot of work to be done in this life, there is a lot of this world I have never seen and touched. I want to make every place home. I have been thinking that it would be fun to live in a teardrop trailer it has just enough room for two people and I could tow it with my station wagon. It is a dream that my parents had many years ago and we used to laugh at them for it... But now I see the beauty of such an adventure... now I get it... I'm going to make it happen one of these days, who would like to come?
